American Idiot Wine Pairing

Punk rock, mosh-pits and sold-out stadiums. 

I am thrilled to be attending the direct from Broadway, smash-hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT, based on Green Day’s GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album.
I love me some Green Day.

As you know, wine doesn't just pair with food.
It also pairs with music, people and experiences.


So, what does one pair with Green Day? 


Syrah screams guitar but this band has an edge and for that reason I'm choosing a wine with some serious attitude and a coming-of-age price point of just under $15 a bottle.

Please join me in raising a glass of  BAD ATTITUDE by Nodland Cellars. This red blend is artfully comprised of Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes from Walla Walla, WA. This is a BIG wine to jam to with blueberries,  ripe plums, cherries, with traces of violets, chocolate and spice. In this case, drinking bad is very good.

Seriously, how lucky are we that Broadway comes to us? Cheers to the theater passionate folks at West Coast Entertainment. Year-after-year they deliver National tours to the INB Performing Arts Center right here in Spokane, WA.

Those things you've always intended on doing....Well, you should really do them.
Like taking the opportunity of witnessing this show November 22-23, 2013.
Do it! You know you want to. Tickets available at TicketsWest.

Like with all good Broadway, there's a story to sung. This one encompasses three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey.

I can't wait to take in Green Day hits like “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and of course the title track, AMERICAN IDIOT.

Besides I already know what wine to pair it with.  Here's a sneak peak.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Are some wines more romantic than others?

Absolutely! Port for instance is a seductively slow sip that vies for the title of most romantic wine. Additionally, Port is ideal for winter thanks to the warmth of brandy added during the winemaking process. 
I’m thrilled about receiving the highly anticipated release of Quinta de la Rosa’s 30-Year-Old Tawny Port. This collectible port celebrates the thirtieth anniversary since the Father/Daughter team of Tim and Sophia Bergqvist started Quinta de la Rosa in the Douro. This beautiful amber color port is aged well for three decades. Respectfully, slow down and don’t rush this. This is definately a bottle you need to spend some time with. It has enormous elegance and complexity. 

Winemaker’s Notes: On the nose, slightly dried fruit aromas with touches of balsamic vinegar, coffee and exotic wood being just some of the components. On the palate it is simply delicious, almost light but with incredible intensity of flavor, soft, mouth filling with great persistence. Food Match: Best served…

Urban Living - Spokane Style 

This was fun! Our story and loft was featured in the Inlander Health & Home magazine. Thank you to Blythe Thimsen, writer and Young Kwak, photographer. We are also very grateful to Heather Hanley of the Tin Roof for helping us design our space. Our ensuite coffee lounge even made the cover. Additionally, the other featured urban space was one of my downtown listings. ♥️

Laurie and James Allen’s new home in Kendall Yards offers lots of light and quick access to all that downtown Spokane has to offer.

"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…
